Mercedes Benz Brake Disc and Pad Kit Articles

FAQs—Mercedes Benz Brake Disc and Pad Kit

  1. I am a racing enthusiast and recently got a Mercedes Benz at a fairly good price. I must admit I fell in love with it but my being a racing aficionado oftentimes kicks in. Do know that I don't intend to actually dedicate my Benz to racing, but it is just that I love the feeling of fast-paced driving. Now the question is, would it be alright if I use racing brake disc and pad kit in my car?

Sure enough, racing brake pads are cool, but in terms of functionality, it would only benefit cars meant for racing. Racing brake disk and pad kits are engineered to work on severely high temperature, which is achieved through fast-paced driving such as racing. More so, racing pads are composed of a harder compound, which easily exhausts the brake discs. And since Mercedes Benz is a vehicle that is not designed for racing, it would be best to retain your conventional brake discs and pads. This way, your Benz would live a long life.

  1. I have noticed some grinding, screeching, and squeaking sound whenever I step on my brakes. The last time I checked with my service advisor, he recommended I have my brake disc and pad checked out. My question is, what commonly causes these unwanted sounds on the brakes of my Mercedes Benz?

Modern Mercedes Benz brake discs and pads are designed to contain metallic wear sensors, which result in high-frequency vibrations when the pad and the brake rotor come in contact. However, other factors that may cause this problem include the compounds that make up the metallic sensors, temperature alteration, and extreme humidity. These sounds should not be tolerated and require immediate attention, or else more damage could occur to the braking system that may mean more costs and hassle on your end.

  1. Help! I need to replace my Mercedes Benz brake pads. What are the pros and cons of semi-metallic brake pads, ceramic brake pads, and organic brake pads?

Modern cars such as the recent Mercedes Benz models commonly use the semi-metallic brake pads with embedded metal fibers. These types are fairly easy on the pocket, are cold-resistant, and work well with the brake rotors. On the other hand, ceramic brake pads are made up of long-lasting ceramic and copper fibers integrated into the brake pad compounds. These are costlier than the semi-metallic types but are more durable, work quieter, and engender lesser brake dust. The third type, the organic brake pads are composed of natural glass, carbon, rubber, and Kevlar. Other upgraded models even have copper or steel compounds, which allow faster heat transfer. Since these types of pads are softer, they produce less noise but also wear out faster and accumulate more brake dust.

  1. In a matter of three months, I have replaced my Benz brake pads twice-one with metallic pads and another with ceramic brake pads. To my dismay, that didn't solve the squealing sound. Now the local auto repair shop is suggesting I try the organic brake pads. Will this solve the issue? I want to be sure my money would go somewhere this time.

While the type of brake pads used may have something to do with the squealing sound, you have to remember that said sound comes as a result of vibrations produced when the pad and the rotor come in contact. Instead of spending on another type of brake pad, why not go to a licensed Mercedes Benz dealer so that proper diagnosis is done? Vibration is caused by several factors such as a defective caliper, a missing, malfunctioning, or broken brake hardware, a warped rotor, a faulty brake booster, plus a myriad other failure in the brake system. A complete diagnosis would tell you the exact problem and apart from replacing the pads and discs, grease should likewise be applied to all metal surfaces. Again, only a licensed Benz advisor could help you pinpoint the exact problem.
